Six girls took part in a charity walk for a cancer charity and gave their hair to be made into wigs for children.
The 13-year-old girls walked 25 miles from St Albans to Aston Clinton over two days in a bid to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
They donated at least 7 inches of their hair to The Little Princess Trust to make wigs for cancer patients.
During the summer holidays they have undertaken practice walks in preparation for the big day and have been growing their hair for a while ready for the big haircut.
The girls said: "We are doing this because a close family friend has recently passed away of terminal cancer a couple of months after having a baby girl.

"We feel she had so much left to do with her life and we don't want others to suffer the same fate."
The walk was completed over two days with an overnight camp out on August 19 and 20.
